Summer Freedom...

Today is the first day that I feel a bit like summer...We got back early this morning and I didn't get to sleep until past 2:30am. Needless to say I am tired. I am not complaining, mind you. It really was a wonderful weekend in Illinois, everything we went to accomplish got finished and the people are great. I feel pleased and satisfied at how well it all went.

Now begins the summer, a time to relax, free my mind, focus on where I want to be, how I want to be...

The nice thing about summer is that it is open. Although we have plans, there are no plans.. We are taking a family vacation to Minnesota to go the conference and Yellowstone.

This is the time where the mind can relax, where the noise of the year can be settled, dealt with, put away. Every year is new, every group of students new, fresh, and ready. It is almost having a beautifully plowed plot of earth, ready to plant. You are given the flowers and your job is to place and care for them.

I am wondering what my flowers will look like this coming year...will the garden I am given be a good one where I can work with others to accomplish great things...I am ready to be in a position to thrive, grow. I want my face to be in the sun, basking in the warmth. I want to give that to my students opportunity to grow and thrive.

For now...I am not going to ask for anything...I am going to let it be and see if it's meant to happen. The nice thing? I have time to wait!
